: : a few months ago i had seen a news brief on tv about the "new" prozac which is supposed to have fewer sexual side effects. is this "modified" prozac what is being marketed as celexa? i'm extremely frustrated w/ the antidepressants that i've tried, finding that the most effective for me are the SSRIs, but everything i've tried has really hindered my sex drive. it seems to come down to either stabilized moods or an enjoyable sex life, and since the mood t hing is more life or death, i have to compromise the other. i'm frustrated and would like some alternatives. thanks.
Viagra currently is indicated for erectile dysfunction in men. There are
some anecdotal reports of greater sexual response in women using Viagra,
but no controlled studies yet. Research is just begining in this area.
In reviewing the literature there is no definative study demonstrating
the efficacy of Viagra in women with SSRI induced sexual dysfunction. There
are other medications that might be helpful in addition to those previously
mentioned such as Buspar, Remeron, and Ritalin in this problem. Hope
this has been helpful.
